Mt Eden's Best Cafe

The Garden Shed

About Us

We specialize in crafting uncomplicated and sincere cuisine that draws inspiration from a multitude of flavors found across the globe. Our sauces, breads, stocks, and pastas are all meticulously prepared by hand with a genuine passion.

By collaborating with local suppliers, we ensure that we procure the finest seasonal ingredients. We strongly believe in using ethically sourced meats and animal products, as what benefits them also benefits us and the environment.

Our goal is to cultivate a warm and inviting atmosphere, treating every guest as if they were a cherished member of our own family.

So kick off your boots, settle in comfortably, and relish in the delightful offerings from our exceptional bistro menu.


We take pleasure in hosting a diverse range of events at our prime location in the heart of Mt Eden. Whether it’s an intimate dinner, a lively party, a professional meeting, or even a memorable wedding, we have experience in making each occasion exceptional. If you have something special in mind, reach out to us, and we’ll gladly assist you in organizing your event, allowing you to relax and fully enjoy the experience.
